But he can't resist the lure of the ring and readies himself for a comeback.

The Wrestler The Wrestler is a hard movie to watch.
The best part of the script was that Randy "The Ram" is such a flawed character, he's single, broke, lives in a crap trailer, has hearing problems, has heart problems, and his daughter hates him, but he's so likable.
You are quickly thrown into the ring with Randy the Ram (Mickey Rourke) , watching his moves and motivations.
